This pretty building perfectly clicks with the whole Copenhagen architecture, thought, after renovation, it was never been a "real" church.

Just a few steps away from Amagertorv and Strøget, this church is actually not a church, but a Contemporary Art Center. In my opinion the exterior, with its Neo-Baroque 90-meter long spire, is much more worth a stop by.

Found by chance, this church really hit my heart. Wonderful and in the typical scandinavian style, it is definetely worth to be visited.

The building was constructed in the early 1900 on the remnants of a burnt out church but was never consecrated as church ... now put to much better use as exhibition hall. Changing shows so look up their website for current show.

WHen we were first in Copenhagen years ago, we thought this is a real church. But we learned quickly, that is an exhibition hall for modern, mostly contemporary art. It was a very good idea to use the former church as art center.

This is an average art center (at best), located in a stunning renovated 16th century church. All the exhibits literally pale at the magnitude of the church. Forget about the art part. Visit the place for taking a look at was once a stunning church.

Situated in heart of Copenhagen, st Nicholas hosts permanent contemporary art exhibitions of Danish and international artists. Curator's choices are sophisticated and smart but not provocative, the themes attract general public and children as well. Entrance fee about 25DKK.

A lovely quiet haven in the middle of the city. They have regular services and occasionaly have some in English. Inside the churh is beautiful and at the back there is a lovely restaurant/cafe.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
